Kids Runs the Nation is an after school program that runs for 12 weeks and is offered to kids in grades 3 through 5. Each year, ChildLaw partners with an area school to offer kids this exciting program. While participating in Kids Run the Nation, kids receive healthy snacks and work on their self-esteem, their friendships, their community awareness, and their physical activity.
To promote community awareness, Kids Run the Nation works on a community service project with the kids participating in the program.
Kids Run the Nation conditions the kids to run a 5k that is held at the end of the program. When the kids finish the race, they receive medals commemorating their accomplishments!
